Pros

Very talented work force. Inspired products and stories. Supportive environment for staff and Medtronic employees.

Cons

Lacks shared vision for future. Difficult environment for contractors. Lot's of political loop holes. Unfortunately, staff turnover is seldom, which is good for those employees but some turnover may spur more creative solutions and business acumen.

Advice to Management

Shuffle employee talent to get more exposure and diverse experience across business segments. Keeps employees motivated and fresh.

    Pros

    Community Day is always a pro. Love helping out the community.

    Cons

    Management is clueless. They have managers in positions that don’t understand what their employees do, thus leading to layoffs and saving those who lie and feed managers with BS or are his or her friends. Low-end managers listen to leads that are banking on retiring in 5 years. Senior Managers are getting fed bad information from low-end managers.

    Advice to Management

    Look around, how many 50+ employees does Medtronic have. Some employees are great but some have a goal and it is to coast to retirement. They are hoping to squeeze 5 more years out. Some of these are leads and managers. Senior management is seeing its young work force leave. For engineering and tech jobs it will take years to get new employees up to speed. Guess they are all banking on 5 years. Medtronic is going to be lost 5 years from now. Unless the plan is to start shipping jobs over seas? With the new CEO and what he did at GM, bank on more jobs in the US being lost in 2013 and on.
